I didn't get it.....

The manager told me the only reason he didn't select me was I didn't work in his department and didn't know hiw people. WTF! He said he could see I have a passion for what I do and it's too bad more people weren't like me.


So instead of Tigger, I feel like Eeyore.....

Kisses & Hugs,

~Friendship is a gift given from the heart and treasured forever~

Candy---I am soo very sorry, I know that you deserved and were the best for the job, maybe the other person they picked will fail and will be right back at ya again. Don't get too down, do the best you can and you will be noticed. Sorry I haven't been around and I am late with this.

I am so very very sorry candy!!!

It sounds to me like he was already second guessing his choice!

I do a bit of hiring (and firing LO for my business... and I have to say... I will hire someone with the right attitude EVERYTIME over someone perhaps more qualified!! I can take someone with the right attitude and teach them ANYTHING... I can't do a damn thing with someone with the best credentials in the world and a terrible attitude and simply not be able to so anything with them....

I know it is very disappointing to you.... but perhaps this means another and even better opportunity is about to persent itself to you and had you been in this position you would not see it or recognize it when it happens.....

Keep the faith Beautiful!!!

Somehow I KNOW you will get where you want to be!!!!

Sorry, sweetie, but thats a lame excuse he gave, it sounds like they had someone lined up for that job all along and the interviews were just to make it appeare fair.

I do not know about this because I am new to your Blog world but I have to tell you that I would pick a day with Eeyore over Tigger becaue at least Eeyore relays his emoitons then covering them up.

I look forward to getting to know you through your blog sweetie!

I don't understand why the ass even interviewed you if one of his criteria was to be from within his department. He should have his ass reamed from higher for wasting your time as well as company time on meaningless interviews. What a dumbass.

Oh well, get up off the ground, dust your hindend off, you'll live. Continue to give 110%. It will serve you well in the end. You'll see. Later.

i'm so sorry to hear this as i know how much you wanted and deserved this promotion. Keep smiling as something else better will soon turn up and you'll then see fate was on your side. If i can do anything to lift your spirits, soooooth your worries away, or play piglet to your Eeyore then you know where to find me.

' Good Morning, Pooh Bear,' said Eeyore gloominly. 'If it is a good morning,'he said. 'Which I doubt,' he said."

"'However,' he said, brightening up a little, 'we haven't had an earthquake lately.'"


better things may be on your horizon...

things happen for a reason!

Terrible Break but this is America and if your current supervisor doesn't recognize your talent then a smarter supervisor will. If it doesn't happen there then It will happen somewhere else. Aim high and go for it. Sometimes we have to step up on our own despite what others don't know about us. Tigger is great, happy and silly but all over the place. Eeyore is a good friend to them all and is always there to help even if he's a little pestimistic. He's still pretty cool. My daughter loved the show and choose a Eeyore stuffed animal and loves him. OH NO I'LL NEVER MAKE IT but he always does.

Dolt! Idiot! Moron! Schmuck! Nincompoop! Fool! Simpleton!

I'm sure I've left out a few, but clearly, this person doesn't deserve to have you working for him. Wait until he makes the poor choice and needs the life preserver - then don't throw it!

Ya still got us, and we'll never turn you down!

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

well, crap. Dang it, I know how much you wanted this. I'm so sorry. Don't feel like Eeyore...cuz I know you gave more than 100% in that interview...he's the one that ought to be feelin like an ass for letting something as simple as not knowing his people get in the way....little does he know that in no time flat you would've known them, and probably far better than he does. Love Ya! {{ HUGS }}
